Bob Dylan famously sang, “The Times They Are A-Changin”. For business analysis practitioners we are have become used to change, but what does it mean for our roles. How are they a-changin?
Technical Business Analysts, Process Analysts, Product Owners, Product Managers, Change Managers, Business Architects even project managers all need to have business analysis skills to assist companies in defining and determining value. Business analysis skills are important but now may be complemented with other skillsets. So does the Business Analyst role need to remain or should it only be seen as a foundational set of skill.
So is it just our roles names that are changing? Is or there something more to this shift.
Join a set of panellists to discuss if the business analyst role is still relevant, does it remain or is it morphing where business analysis skills are merely a foundation to fulfil a myriad of other roles and positions within an organization?
